Finally a unique bag

012605_fstopped.jpg
I don’t know about you, but I like the idea of having a bag that is unique to me and me alone. One way to do this would be to start up my long dormant plan of sewing my own bags.

Or I could go with an easier option: Finally Stopped Dressing for the Boys, a line of femine, one of a kind bags made of old army bags. My favorite is Oragami because I like the combination of grommets, sillk and army fabric. Plus with three inner pockets it sounds downright useful.

Check out all four bags if you are looking for something a little different.

White bags of all shapes, sizes and prices

I’v gotten a couple email requests about white bags so I’m going to try to pull up some suggestions all in one post. I always ruled out white bags for myself as too risky since they could get dirty fast. I tend to bang up my bags, so white seemed to be asking for trouble. But not only is white going to be big this spring, but I’ve also found myself keeping an eye out for winter white this season. So for all seasons, you can’t go wrong with white.

Why can’t more bags be designed to be this straight forward and practical? Canvas fabric looks durable and hard wearing, but the metallic details are light and delicate.

What first caught my attention was these big open pockets in the front. Perfect to stash my subway pass, cell phone, lip gloss…all those items I’m usually fumbling around for.

Sadly, it looks like everyone else figured out how great this bag was before me since it is sold out.
